Mother's Day Brunch

May 6, 2015

 

Mother’s Day in my home growing up meant an afternoon brunch filled with a hodgepodge of my mom’s favorite dishes. Every year she would sit like a queen and dole out a menu of different of salads, casseroles, shrimp, steak, cakes, and mimosas for us to prepare. For this Mother’s Day, pick up some local, ethically raised poultry and try two of my family favorites!

 

My family favorite: Broccoli Soufflé.

Although it may not sound amazing, it is always a crowd favorite! 

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz. broccoli florets

  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup*

  • 1 small onion

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese*

  • 6 eggs*

  • 1 cup mayonnaise*

Recipe:

  • Steam broccoli for 5 minutes, until bright green

  • Chop the onion

  • Whisk the eggs

  • Combine the eggs, mayonnaise, mushroom soup, chopped onions, and cheese

  • Fold in the broccoli last to keep the florets from falling apart completely

  • Butter  a 13 x 9 glass baking dish, and add combined ingredients

  • Bake for 1 hour at 350° Fahrenheit

Serves ten

*When buying eggs, mayonnaise, and milk products be sure to buy from ethical and local suppliers when possible!

 

Waldorf Chicken Salad

The classic “Waldorf” salad is made with walnuts, but we replaced it with pecans because we like them better, but either way will do! 

 

This chicken salad could be scooped onto crackers, eaten as an entree, or made into tea sandwiches for the perfect Mother’s Day Tea.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

  • 3 cups chopped, cooked chicken* (about a pound of raw chicken breast)

  • 1 cup seedless red grapes, halved 

  • 1 large Gala apple, diced

  • 1 cup celery, diced

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise*

  • 1/4 cup honey mustard

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 tsp. of garlic powder (but we really like garlic!)

Recipe: 

  • Preheat oven to 350°. 

  • Bake Walnuts in a single layer in a shallow pan 6 to 8 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through.

  • Stir together chicken, grapes, apples, celery, mayo, vinegar, and pecans. Add salt, pepper, and garlic to taste.

*When buying chicken and mayonnaise be sure to buy from ethical and local suppliers when possible!
